I ended up by blocking support at microsoft.com in /etc/mail/access in
general since I don't think anybody at Microsoft is going to pick up mail
at that address nor does Microsoft send out email as
support at microsoft.com (afaik, that is...). I had a similar issue with
virii sent out by marketing at playstation.com or similar, so I ended up
blocking that one as well, similar to the big at boss.com issue.
That way, the mails don't even get through and MailScanner isn't involved.
